Question 25-year old Japanese imports - what would you buy?

Japan had some amazing cars in the 90s and guess what, they're hitting the USA's 25-year import rule.

Some cool cars included the Mazda AZ-1 and the Suzuki Cappuccino:

Is there anything you'd bring over?

I would be interested in many of them including the Capuccino but the right hand drive factor kills it for me.
